YOUR FAMILY'S HEALTH IS IMPORTANT TO ME. THAT IS WHY I AM TAKING THE FOLLOWING PRECAUTIONS TO KEEP YOU SAFE DURING YOUR VISIT:
FOR HOME VISITS:
  • I change my clothes just prior to the appointment

  • I wear personal protective equipment, including but not limited to: an N95 mask, a KN95 mask, an antiviral procedure mask, gloves, and a gown

  • I ask that any adult present for the appointment also wear a mask

  • Only necessary items are brought into the home

  • All items are wiped down immediately upon entering the home

  • I wash my hands with soap and water

  • I use disposable gloves for hands on assessments

  • I carry hand sanitizer to use during the appointment 

  • All items are wiped down at the end of the visit

  • I wash my hands again prior to leaving 

FOR OFFICE VISITS:
PERSONAL LIFE:
  • I change my clothes just prior to the start of the day

  • I wear personal protective equipment, including but not limited to: an N95 mask, a KN95 mask, an antiviral procedure mask, gloves, and a gown

  • I wipe down high contact common areas upon arrival to my office building

  • I wash my hands with soap and water 

  • I wipe down my office space with medical grade, fragrance free sanitizing wipes at the start of the day, between appointments, and at the end of the day

  • I run a HEPA air filter at all times in my office. HEPA air filters effectively remove virus molecules, including Covid 19, from the air

  • I run a non ozone producing UV sterilizer in between appointments. UV sterilization effectively kills virus molecules, including Covid 19, on both hard and soft surfaces

  • Appointments are spaced to allow for adequate cleaning and in order to refresh the air in between cases

  • My office building requires any adult present in the building to wear a mask

  • The waiting area is closed, so I ask that you please call when you arrive so that I can come out to get you

  • I have a pre-exisiting medical condition that makes me particularly high risk

  • I always wear a mask in public

  • I practice social distancing

  • I do see immediate family members- including my mom, sisters, nieces and nephews, who all also wear a mask and practice social distancing

  • Childcare during my working hours is provided by a nanny in my home

  • If I have a potential exposure I will self quarantine for 14 days

  • If I develop symptoms, I will seek testing and self quarantine for 14 days or longer

  • If myself or a close family member is diagnosed with Covid 19, all clients whom I have had contact with in the 7-14 days prior will be notified

WHAT I AM ASKING OF YOU:
Please be honest with me. I am not going to refuse to accept you as a client if you have had a recent exposure, or even if you are Covid positive. I will, however, institute the safety measures that best suit the situation. If you or a family member have Covid 19 symptoms, please allow me to set up a virtual meeting rather than an in-person one. If you have had a recent exposure, or if you or a family member work in a high risk field, please tell me so that I can determine the safest type of appointment to schedule, and the right PPE for that appointment.  ...Maybe you should not be the first office visit of the day. Maybe we should meet outdoors, at your home, with an N95 mask and a face shield.
 
In a time where proper medical care can be so hard to obtain, know that I am not going to deny you care. But please be considerate of my health, of my family members health, and of the health of all of the families that I will see after you, as we work together to ensure the safest care possible. Thank you!
